How to get to Budapest

WizzAir flies to Budapest from Warsaw, London, Brussels, Eindhoven, Dortmund, Milan, Barcelona, Stockholm, Turku, etc.

Ryanair just launched 31 destinations from Budapest, including Warsaw, London, Dublin, Paris, Milan, Barcelona, Oslo, Stockholm, Brussels, Eindhoven, etc. If you're fast you can catch tickets for 5€!

Try OrangeWays coaches from Prague, Krakow and Vienna.

Or choose MÁV trains from Prague and Vienna.

How to get in the city from the airport

  • Taxi: Főtaxi takes you to the hostel for a 5,800 HUF/21 € fixed price. Tel: +36-1-222-22-22

  • Airport-Shuttle Minibus: takes 8-10 people. For details see the link.

  • Public transport: BKV (Budapest Transport Ltd.) takes longer to get  downtown but for a fair price.

    How to get to the hostel:
    • 200E bus from T1/2 to 'Kőbánya-Kispest' Metro3 terminus
    • Metro3 (blue line) to 'Ferenciek tere' station
    • 5 minutes walk to the hostel

    In order to enjoy the weekend to the fullest we recommend you to buy a BKV pass.

    • Monthly Student Pass: 3,850 HUF/13.5 €

      If you are EU/Swiss citizen bring your home student ID and you are eligible to buy a Monthly Student Pass. Though buying monthly ticket might seem odd, there is no pass for 4 days and 72 hours pass costs the same as this. With this you'll have the most inexpensive type of unlimited transport for all four days.

    • Weekly Pass: 4,600 HUF/16 €
    • 10 Single Tickets: 2,800 HUF/10 €

  • Train: MÁV (Hungarian State Railway) offers a 20 minutes connection ONLY from T1 to 'Nyugati Railway Station'. Your BKV pass is also valid on trains within the boundaries of Budapest, so in this case, as well.

    • From 'Nyugati Railway Station' take Metro3 southbound to 'Ferenciek tere' to get to the hostel

Everybody will be hosted at

Insider tips

Where to eat

Castro bisztro: Great little cafe with inside & outside tables, large and small dishes combining a mix of traditional Hungarian ingredients and international food. Mostly a local hangout, frequented by young artists and shop owners.

Menza: Although the name of the restaurant means canteen, its interior design and cuisine provides a more sophisticated take on the past that is fine tuned to match contemporary tastes.

Ráday street: The intimate street which offers a treasury of gastronomical opportunities is popular among the inhabitants of the capital as well as with tourists.

Where to go for a drink

Szimpla: At this bohemian hot spot, artsy types gather in the large, smoky underground cellar, sprawling over an eclectic mix of furniture. No one leaves unimpressed by the grunge art (donated by students from local design schools) and the surreal maze of rooms.

Mika Tivadar: A club where you can drink and dance every night. Friendly staff, moderate prices, a mixture of modern and 30s' design in a renovated Art Nouveau building of an old copper factory.

Ellátó kert: You really cannot go wrong with an open-air place in Kazinczy utca. This ruin pub has table tennis, football and a kitchen, serving taco and chicken.

Where to party

Corvintető: This ‘underground garden above the city’ is on the rooftop of the former Corvin department store and has excellent concerts.

Anker: is a ca. 400 sqm space that used to be a bank before. Now, it is a 21st century cultural center, where happenings are not delivered to the people in a passive way.

Ötkert: Budapest's first posh garden, which becomes a disco-garden on the weekends.

Discover

Széchenyi Thermal Bath: The largest thermal bath of Budapest featuring neo-baroque style. It is a vast complex of indoor and outdoor pools, situated in the middle of the City Park.

Margaret Island: A pedestrian recreational island in the middle of the Danube River has long been a welcoming green oasis in the heart of Budapest. The island is very popular among local people.

Memento Park: Memento Park is a unique museum including Statue Park with monumental statues from Hungary's Communist period (1949-1989). You can see the statues of Lenin, Marx and Engels, as well as Hungarian Communist leaders in this open air museum.
